It’s Wednesday and time for a gem of wisdom! Something we all often enjoy are the simplest things in life. The tiny things that sometimes go un-noticed but make the world a brilliant place to be and keep you smiling!
Before we list a collection of simple loves which we’ve gathered, take a moment to think about the simple things that you adore….tell us about them (@flourtweet ) There’s a lot of beauty to be found in simplicity.
Simple things we love at FLOUR:
1. A KISS ON THE FOREHEAD FROM THE PERSON YOU LOVE:
Simple as that.
2. BREAD AND BUTTER, BAGELS and HOT BUTTERED TOAST
We asked some FLOUR friends what their favourite simple things are and a resounding answer across the board was the love for all things warm and toasty. In true British style, sometimes there’s nothing nicer than the doughy stuff with some butter!
3. WHEN THE SUN COMES OUT (EVEN JUST A LITTLE) AND LONDONERS GET SUMMERY..INSTANTLY:
Quite simply, we love how mad the British are but also how wonderfully appreciative they are of the sunshine (when it danes to make an appearance!) Flipflops in minus degrees, boardies, bikini’s – the lot. Especially when it’s still cold- this simply makes us smile!
4. JUMPING INTO WATER:
We love the feeling of being immersed in water, there’s nothing more refreshing or awakening!
Oh and the feeling afterwards of being wrapped in a towel..isn’t too bad either!
5. AN UNEXPECTED SNEEZE!
Not when you have a cold of course, but it is a fun little feeling when you sneeze without expecting it. Quite satisfying really – aaaaaaaaaaaachooo!
6. RAIN AGAINST THE WINDOW, WHEN YOU’RE TUCKED UP IN BED..
What a blissful and comforting feeling it is to be snuggled up in bed when rain is hitting hard against the window.
7. POST – THE SNAIL MAIL WAY!
An age of emails, texts, whatsapp and bbm mean that the art of the written word is rare and few and far between. That’s why something as simple as seeing a non-bill land on your doormat is one of our favourite simple things. Next time you go on holiday, why not send a postcard or better yet send someone something in the post ‘just because’!
8. CUP OF TEA IN BED
Yes…please! Always a treat!
Share with us the simple things that make you smile!
